    There are plenty of sleeper cells that have been set up in America because of this.

    We have more than 11 million people who have illegally entered our country and decided to stay. At what point does it become an invasion?

    Might get messy too. Military is for killing people and breaking stuff.
    That is true, but my impression is that one of the original purposes of our military was to protect our borders. I realize that meant against invasion by foreign military forces, but it would be conceivable to me that they could physically secure the borders under specific legal guidelines.

    That's not the issue. The issue is our porous border, and what we are doing is obviously not working. I support legal immigration, not illegals climbing the fences.

    Why don't you ask Janet Napolitano?

    I will drop this here for you though

    A 2006 congressional report on border threats, titled “A Line in the Sand: Confronting the Threat at the Southwest Border” and prepared by the House Committee on Homeland Security Subcommittee on Investigations, indicated that 1.2 million illegal aliens were apprehended in 2005 alone, and 165,000 of those were from countries other than Mexico. Approximately 650 were from “special interest countries,” or nations the Border Patrol defines as “designated by the intelligence community as countries that could export individuals that could bring harm to our country in the way of terrorism.”

    Why is it so wrong to do what is needed to be done to keep illegals illegally crossing the border and stealing your countries resources same as you not wanting dogs killing your chickens
    Sending military to the border to do what? Militarize us? Make us look like that "shining light on the hill"? To show us what "freedom" is all about?
    If you missed this also: http://www.politifact.com/florida/st...tion-net-zero/

    Also if you wanna do something about "illegal immigrants" you might wanna look at NAFTA and this "free trade".

    Illegal immigration is not only good for the economy but at a net zero last i heard. This is an extreme overreaction. Haven't you seen the south park ep where the border patrol is rooting on the lone mexican who actually wanted to cross the border?

    In addition, i believe people have an "inalienable right" to travel anywhere in this world.

    The last time I checked NAFTA is not like EU citizenship and the Schengen area.

    No you really don't, countries have the right to protect and control their own borders.
